OVER €61m has been set aside for social housing in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown. Environment Minister Alan Kelly has announced a total of €1.5bn will be made available to local authorities nationwide for social housing this week.

The investment means 681 new social housing units and is expected to reduce the housing list by 20% by the end of 2017.
Dun Laoghaire Deputy Eamon Gilmore (Lab) said the construction of 53 units in Fitzgerald Park, Dun Laoghaire, had been given the green light. He added: “We have a housing problem in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown but in Minister Kelly we have someone who is determined to tackle the crisis head-on.”
Minister Kelly said the funding “will have a major impact”, reducing national housing list figures by 25%.
